This was easy to make. Chicken turned out very tender, and like another reviewer said it needed some salt. I served it over couscous . However I wasn’t won over with the flavor of the sauce, I thought the combination was a little bland. Might try just the barbecue sauce and a little water next time.

This was surprisingly good, especially considering how easy the prep is. Definitely recommend serving over rice. Lots of sauce. I would add a some salt, but make it first as is and adjust to your taste. Very yummy.
